“This critical step puts humanity on a path to sustainable lunar exploration and keeps our eyes on missions farther into the solar system, including Mars.”
The last crewed mission to the moon took place in 1972 under the Apollo program.
Lisa Watson-Morgan, program manager for HLS at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama, added: “During the Apollo program, we proved that it is possible to do the seemingly impossible: land humans on the Moon.
“By taking a collaborative approach in working with industry while leveraging NASA’s proven technical expertise and capabilities, we will return American astronauts to the Moon’s surface once again, this time to explore new areas for longer periods of time.”
